I'm guessing this was your big announcement eh Ziming? :D
Very, very excited. A whole hour talking about Shenmue, with Mark Cerny present? Sounds too good to be true.

Will it be recorded by any chance?

Afraid not, this was unexpected. I had something else planned.

A lot of people are downplaying this but the fact that Mark Cerny is translating and that this is coming after all the recent Shenmue talk going around... Seems like something more than what is at the surface. Why do a postmortem now and not in the last twelve years? Why have a very good friend, who happens to be the lead architect on a popular next gen console translate? Why mention Shenmue in PlayStation tweets and such?

Is an HD collection coming or is it something more or something less or is it nothing at all? Doesn't make sense for all this to be coincidence. S'all I'm saying...

Also yes I know Mark Cerny translated before and he worked at Sega for seven years but nevermind that and let me dream, dammit!

Holy shit!! Guys this is it I'm not kidding!! There will be a Shenmue/PS4 announcement at this. There has to be, didn't someone say 6 months before announcements are made or something.

Plus Mark Cerny??? Best Shenmue news in years!!

Btw people should ignore the wore postmortem, it's just a word the gaming press use and it means to revisit and dissect.
Plenty of on going games have had postmortems.


Also to help with this damn phone's spellchecker.

Thanks! I was just drafting a reply asking about their use of the word "postmortem." When I first saw it my heart dropped because I thought they were going to say the series was dead and show some highlights. But I'm glad to know it's more of an analysis. My excitement is back up now! Still looking forward to Ziming's update.

It won't be on the front page because this news takes precedence over it. However I still plan to share it on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

This could be nothing again, like so many times before...
But damn it sure sounds like something big. It would fit well into the the grand puzzle with all the recent news regarding Shenmue and Sony, the pictures of Yu and Mark and whatnot.

Anyway there will definatley some really interesting talk about Shenmue no matter what. Even if it turns out that Yu Suzuki abandoned Shenmue forever and focuses on other projects, this should be the most informative event regarding Shenmue in many many years.

I definately expect something big of this. Not huge but definately bigger then anything since ~ 2004.
